DURBAN – Lamontville Golden Arrows emerging star, Nduduzo “Sulumane” Sibiya, boasts great ability but lacks the consistency that could see him being counted among the best in the country.
That’s what his coach at Abafana Bes’thende, Steve Komphela, believes and he has now challenged Sibiya to up the ante in order to realise his full potential in the beautiful game.
Sibiya burst onto the scene during 2013/14 season, dazzling the fans with his silky skills and deft touches. He is a marvel to watch on his day but the master playmaker has fallen short on taking his form from one game to the next. Komphela has admitted that he is not getting 100 percent of the talented player.
“I’m just happy with uSulu Sibiya but he needs to be consistent,” Komphela said, intimating that inconsistency is a common challenge in a young team like Arrows.
“My only challenge with a youthful team is that they must perform consistently. Sibiya can’t show us his brilliance at training and give you 30 minutes in a game situation and the rest of 60 minutes you are searching for him,” he elaborated.
